with newt gingrich, rick santorum, rick perry and fight for 15 months before they look up in may and say, okay, now we have to open field offices. the obama field offices were there a year and a half. multiple ones in every one of these states and they were out there meeting these voters al o an individual basis. these weren't just numbers. they were human beings -- >> you can't get elected on the young vote. i looked at the numbers, and these numbers of young voters were better than last time for obama. who would have predicted that. >> well, they went -- and they also -- they had time to change the makeup of the electorate. florida, they went and registered new voters. they wrej centregistered these . look at the state of ohio. all of the pollster conspiracy, polling conspiracy theorists would say no way democrats are going to have a party i.d. advantage of six, seven, eight points in the state of ohio. well, they had a seven-point advantage. that wasn't -- that didn't just happen. they went and got itdone. they went and did voter registration in specific places because the other thin
santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you. >> thank you, reverend. >> what ails the party, in your opinion? >> i think we haven't reached out, and i think gale marriage is trending, and for whatever reason, this obsession with social issue says killing us. it was a difficult night, and one of the most popular things i've ever tweeted, and i think this is a harsh reality that we're facing right now. but i'm not shocked or surprised. i knew this when my father lost. i've been ostracized from my party, that i've discussed this with you before. if you're not going to start accepting people like me, this party is going to die. >>> now, hogan, let me first start with the same question. what in your opinion is ailing your party? >> i think really one of the stats from election night shocked me. it was george h.w. bush won 60% of the white vote in 1988. me got over 400 electoral votes. mitt romney did the same thing. he got crushed. i think there are three reasons this thing went so badly. one is because we have some type of -- we have decided either to ignore or to

santorum and we can do that. and that's a natural inclination of evangelicals but in the end we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom, that will recognize the importance of the family and to the point of the caller made about the difference between the inner city families and he made some allusion to the white caucasian family has access to more government support. actually what strengthens the opportunitieso that children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up with. unfortunately, what we've seen in the inner city that we now are at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raise bid single parents and so they're missing that influence that most -- in most cases of a father. and that's important. it's important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man they learn how to control their masculinity, they learn their socialization skills from their father. and then that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth and is one of the main factors in causing youn
of rick santorum and we can do that and that is a natural inclination of evangelicals. but we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom and importance of the family and the difference between the inner city families and he made some comment that the white family has more access to government support. what strengthens the opportunities the children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up. unfortunately what we have seen in the inner city, now at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raised by single parents. they are missing that influence in most cases of a father. and that's important. important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man, they learn how to control their masculinity and socialization skills from their father and that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth. it is one of the main factors in causing young girls to delay sexual activity until marriage because they have the acceptance of a father. the absence is the exact opposite. you don't have
. this is really important. 24 liberty torches with the convicts corporate mitt romney and rick santorum had zero torches out of 24. newt gingrich had four liberty torches out of 24. barack obama had 16 liberty torches out of 24. my hero, ron paul, 18 liberty torches out of 24. and gary johnson had 21 out of 24. [applause] >> okay. [laughter] anybody with a rebuttal? i guess you all agree on that. we go to question no. six. we will, by the way, have a discussion on this and two- minute closing comments. we will start with a rocky. it was selected by my editorial team. but in the post to facebook, he asks -- we start with rocky. if you had the opportunity to write one constitutional amendment with an absolute guarantee it would be approved by congress and then following that, what would you amend? >> i have already written it -- please take a look at our website -- it is the new equal rights amendment promising that equal rights under law and will never be a bridge on account of gender or sexual orientation.

, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
time and a lot of money. the governor didn't win a lot of caucuses it went to senator santorum. the economy is very important here, like the rest of the country. immigration and also energy, but, yes, they both spent quite a bit of time here. the president, in fact, mete made 13 stops here, the most visits of any president, ever, making it here in colorado. >> i wonder, alicia, if there is a reason for that. if there is anything the president learned that filtered into his strategy for his 2012 run. did anything come from colorado? >> actually, this is something that ax a, one of the president's advisers talked about, early on in the run up to the re-election. this is early on, part of the strategy, as part of the 2012 run, modeled after the 2010 senate race, won by democrat michael bennett. senator ben bennett wofs know of the a handful of democrats who faired well on the election day, 2 years ago. he won by 29,000 votes when he beat the favorite, ken buck. the strategy by bennett, target hispanics, target scbem frame your opponent as an extremist. that's something that the pr
. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the tides that are determined to come here and do something against leadership -- you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti- leadership i
decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would elect the vice president, so under this scenario your most likely outcome romney/biden. >> then we'll know we're in an alternate reality. chuck, let's move on to florida. if it came down to florida being the deciding state, how might that play how the? >> well, here's the issue with florida right now, and this has to do with election challenges, and i'll just put it here to center it up a little bit. there were two big issues in the state of florida this year that came up. one is in palm beach county where 60,000 absentee
mcconnell, the leaders reverses the guys outside the beltway. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti-leadership is good for them. and it is
mitt romney was finally chosen. somewhere between herman cain and rick santorum. in retrospect, it is striking me as a type of ridiculousness. >> i think for the issues around sexual orientation, we have the last four years of the current president where these issues have already become almost regular issues in american households because the president and his administration were doing things that actually highlighted areas and our concerns from everything from domestic don't tell, even if people were thinking weren't thinking about gender identity, all of a sudden, this becomes, you know, commonplace to hear something about things like that or even a little bit about the issue of hate crimes and legislation back to the beginning of the administration. let's not forget that the president comes out personally and supports the freedom to marry for same-sex couples just a few months back. so for us, it makes sense but it's there. what's interesting about it is that the words were never spoken. there were a lot of discussions around it. are you upset that, you know, the word gay or
to be our candidate. newt gingrich was going to be our candidate. rick santorum was going to be our candidate. i don't want to leave out michele bachmann. i think she was a our can date for a while too. it was up and down. that's, part of the way our system works our democratic system works as we go state by state and fight for it. there is some benefit for that. it forces you to deal with voters. every voter in new hampshire got a personnal visit from michele bachmann, herman cain. in a national primary you wouldn't have the opportunity as voter. more importantly the candidates wouldn't have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there are some good and bad parts of it. it does create some challenges, no question. >> steve schwarzman. >> rob, on, the super pacs on the republican side probably spent over $700 million, something like that. and it looks like, you know, they achieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted. so where does that leave that system? and what does it say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome with that much money
anybody who mitt romney was. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was
in iowa who handed the iowa caucuses to rick santorum. folks in south carolina to get a primary to newt gingrich. >> i don't mean it at all -- [inaudible] not general elections. >> beyond that though, i feel like the last couple, ever since george w. bush's second term there's been an antiestablishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed, angry at the bush administration. they want small government conservatism. so you get more and more, for lack of a better term, tea party ties but i think everybody lumps too many people into the tea party, sort of coulter and. but you get these types who are determined to come here and do something against leadership. i sat down with john boehner on sunday on a bus going come in ohio, rural ohio. like to sit there and watch the road as you go over bonds and whatnot. he likes the fact a lot of sirens around. but he mentioned that he liked the traffic, if you will. he mentioned this to me. i said, you know, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? and given the freshman. he said
